The festival also has cookery demonstrations, children's entertainment and a “shucking” (oyster shell opening) competition. One of the most popular ways to get to Rock and the festival is to take the ferry from Padstow, which sits on the opposite side of the estuary. Rock is one of the wealthiest parts of Cornwall and has more millionaires than any other community.
